UPDATE: This sale may be over, but the Oral-B Genius Pro 8000 is still on sale for $135.99 thanks to a $20 coupon.
If you’re thinking about switching to an electric toothbrush, the best-selling Oral-B Genius Pro 8000 is currently $120 on Amazon. That’s a 26% savings from the usual $162 price tag, and it’s the lowest we’ve ever seen it sell for on Amazon. But a word to the wise—this is a Deal of the Day, so it won’t last long.
Some people stand by electric toothbrushes and swear up and down that they work better. Consumer Reports says it doesn’t really matter, so long as you’re brushing twice a day for two minutes at a time. But, beyond the brush itself, an electric toothbrush can actually help you improve your oral hygiene, especially when it can pair with your smartphone like the Oral-B Genius can.
The Genius Pro 8000 comes with lots of great features:
• 2-minute timer with 30-second reminders for even coverage
• Pressure sensing tech that alerts you if you’re brushing too hard
• Bluetooth connectivity with “position detection” so you don’t miss a spot
• 6 cleaning modes: daily clean, gum care, sensitive, whitening, tongue cleaning and pro-clean mode
• Long-lasting, rechargeable battery with up to 12 days of battery life on a single charge
• Smart travel case that can charge your toothbrush and phone on one outlet
So, while the brush itself may offer the same benefits as any standard toothbrush, the added sensors and controls can help you be a better brusher, develop better habits and have a healthier, happier mouth.
